Dear Mountain LOVER
It all started 25 years ago on a ski trip to St Anton in Austria. There I realized that at one point in my life I would like to have my own guesthouse somewhere in the Alps. A small place where I could host my guests and share my love for the mountains. As a passionate ski instructor my idea was to ski and enjoy delicious food with my guests while reliving epic ski stories in front of the fireplace.
The years went by as I was working in the Swedish mountains, but I never really forgot my dream. In 2014
I got the opportunity to move to Switzerland and run a hotel, the famous Ski Lodge in Engelberg. I learned a lot and picked up many ideas on how to create the perfect mountain hotel.
Then suddenly by timing, coincidences or luck, a possibility to take over a hotel in Zermatt occurred. My dream was no longer a small guesthouse, instead it had become a real hotel in one of the best ski resorts in the world.
Und dann bekam ich, sei durch Zufall oder Glück, die Möglichkeit in einem der besten Skiresorts der Welt ein Hotel zu übernehmen.
I would like to welcome you to Excelsior and to be a part of my dream in Zermatt.
